Previous questions pertain to adding an outdoor electrical box to old stucco (How do I install electrical through existing stucco (e.g. "old work") ).
What are the ways it's done on a wall that will be re-stuccoed?
In this case I'm interested in a design suitable for a weather side wall with heavy blowing rain and baking hot summer sun. It could be flush mount or surface mount.
How can the all the details be done right: flashing, penetration, and protecting the house should the crappy foam seal on the outlet cover eventually fail. I prefer using metal, as I know plastic boxes get brittle in such conditions after only a few decades (short compared to the life of an old house).
